He will be remembered fondly for his time-keeping, his loud voice, his boundless enthusiasm, his off-the-wall sense of humour and banter which somehow was always within the broadcast code. He had a smile for everyone and was a fantastic character who we’ll sorely miss. He was also most emphatic that The Newcastle Beats Show would stay on NE1fm, something that we are hoping to honour with a little help from his many fantastic friends.

On the 31st October, we featured some clips from Newcastle Beats Shows earlier in 2013. The two hour show is in two parts, available to listen through our MixCloud.
